    I use Opera - lots faster and more secure. Sorry for changing the subject but I really dislike Firefox

    I'm quite interested in the Prism addon (discussed http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post...r-firefox.html)

    particularly for deploying web apps to user. Needs the security tightening though.

    Its nice but not perfect yet.

    - Where in gods name is the "home" button? Isn't this the most basic icon needed for a web browser?
    - The refresh and stop icons are really ugly
    - It is alot faster
    - The memory footprint is still big, it seems to grow just by keeping firefox open on a webpage and doing nothing
    - Drag and drop of bookmarks still doest work, I have to cut and paste them in the organiser to move them.
    - Adding a bookmark is awkward, having to move the mouse to the center of the screen to click ok. Tagging is pretty cool though.
    - Addblock original doesnt seem to work yet, addblock plus does but you cant even block an image easily with that version.
    - Clear history doesn't clear history any more, plain doesn't work. massive bug.

    the only thing I like about FF3 is clicking the favicon

    on the flipside.. it trashed my site to bits.
